Letter from Interim Chair Aileen Izquierdo

Hello, and thank you for your interest in the Department of Communication at Florida International University. As you explore our website and learn about our programs, we hope you will reach out to us and engage with our faculty and staff as you endeavor to reach your academic and professional goals.

As you may know, the Department of Communication is part of the School of Communication + Journalism (SCJ) at FIU and is housed in the College of Communication, Architecture + the Arts (CARTA).

The Department of Communication brings together 34 faculty members, six academic advisors, and 18 staff members whose main priority is student success. Our diverse mix of communication scholars and practitioners contribute to the energy and productivity of the department. The faculty engages with students throughout their undergraduate and graduate careers, serving as mentors and advisors as our students navigate their academic and professional journeys.

Our department offers three degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication with specialization in Public Relations and Advertising; a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with tracks in Organizational Communication, Art and Performance Studies, or Design Studies; and a Master of Science in Global Strategic Communications. The B.A. in Organizational Communication, the B.S. in PRAAC and the M.S. in Global Strategic Communications are available fully online.

It is a special opportunity to serve as interim chair at my alma mater, and as our team works to educate the communication leaders of tomorrow, we commit to serving our students the best way we can.

Yours in Panther Pride,

Aileen Izquierdo
Interim Chair, Instructor and GSC Director
